2nd Canvas

2nd canvas
As you might of guessed from my lack of posts I will be doing the May Flower Challenge now and then. I’ve been busy at my part-time job and busy painting. I have to be honest I don’t wake up everyday feeling creative. Some days I don’t do anything remotely creative and then on the days when I’m in the mood I feel like I could paint forever. And this is what has been happening to me for the last week. 
I finally finished my second painting from the Flora Bowley e-course. It hung on my wall in the studio for ages. It was ok but I knew deep down it wasn’t finished.Then one day I just took the canvas off the wall and it went from this.....

 ...... to this.

What a transformation. I couldn’t believe myself. I really love how it turned out. It now hangs proudly in our living room. That has been one of the valuable lessons I took away from the Flora Bowley e-course is that you don’t have to worry if a painting isn’t finished straight away. Just be patient and trust your intuition and eventually your lovely painting will reveal itself.
So it is my painting today I am contributing to the May Flower Challenge.
It is called "Lost in the moment".


  1. WOW! I love your painting. It really is amazing how much we have to trust the process, enjoy the journey, and not force something when we create. Absolutely beautiful painting!

  2. Really beautiful--I love it! Your flower photo is amazing too.


  3. Hi Kirily, I can relate in that I don't always feel creative every day. It seems to come and go! I LOVE your painting. It looks stunning and the colours are lovely. Well done! Wini xo

  4. Love your painting. Looks like you all had a great time doing the course.
